crisis, governor romney talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that appropriate in the middle of the crisis? >> on that same day, the obama administration was in that same position. they disavowed their own statement they put up earlier in the day in cairo. it is never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away. we should always stand up for peace, democracy, individual rights. we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts. when we equivocate on our values, it make us look weak. when we look weak, our adversaries are much more willing to test us. >> that is a bunch of malarkey. this lecture on embassy security. the congressman cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. so much for the embassy security. governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he knew that the ambassador was killed, he was out making political statements. he was panned by the media around the world. this talk about this weakness, i do not understand what my friend is talking about. this is a president who has don

need it. in talking about taxes too as the caller mentioned, we heard mitt romney say with wolf blitzer is that the wealthy are doing fine and i don't care about the wealthy. the question is why do you want to lower their tax rate 20%? he's saying that's not his plan? host going back and forth and obama campaign is trying to making a campaign issue out of it. if the wealthy is doing fine do who bowles-simpson says. he keeps talking of bowles- simpson every chance he has, which had does not slash government spending immediately. and it raise taxes on the wealthy a little bit to close that gap. the ryan budget would have, which he endorsed, mitt romney endorsed and put ryan on the ticket, would have tremendously slashing effect in government spending and social programs. it cuts taxes further. beyond the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. i think there's still a lot of back and forth flip-flopping whatever you want to call it strategic ambiguity what mitt romney is saying. host: let's go to stamford, connecticut,bob you're up next. caller: good morning. i'm an informed voter and i spe

with my colleagues. obama is a favorite. i would make it 55-45. it is a difficult path to romney running the presidency. >> let's talk about the debate. based on your contacts, which would run for the president? was he not prepared? how did romney become a super debater? what happened at the white house and what happened with romney? >> i'd like to leno's line that only the nfl replacement rest obama won the debate. the president looked like a team that was overconfident, that did not fear or respect his opponent and did not take it seriously. the romney i saw was someone i had not seen in a long time. it was the romney i saw when he was running for the u.s. senate in massachusetts in 1994, a pragmatic problem solver. i would have put him 35-45 period -- 35-40. he was for the first time being who he was as opposed to pretending some -- to be someone he was not. >> i keep thinking as a new yorker -- of the new yorker cover cartoon. that is what a lot of people came in be leaving. it is hard to understand what happened with the president. he has a cold, distant demeanor. that expla

poverty, we need to continue to take care of them. as i drew the difference between governor romney and myself, when he talked about those in poverty, i said they haven't chosen to be there. i would not cut our food stamp programs now because we need to make sure those folks can continue to be taken care of. but let's get them a job and get them back to work so families can progress. >> again, this is just about numbers. if you except this tax cut number, the only way to account for it is to have massive cut to these programs that do put people to work and grow jobs and take care people when they are out of work. you have to look at the work i have done. i've committed my life to standing up to the most vulnerable among us. some of the work i do on these issues may be don't get the big headlines. i wrote a piece of legislation, the support of housing investment act, named after a great advocate for anti-homeless this in connecticut that would triple the amount of housing units built for the most vulnerable among us. people have very grave mental illnesses and physical handicaps that can

american, why do we want a modern day gordon gecko as president? i'm talking about mitt romney. i will take my answer of the year. >> i think we want someone who can create jobs and not someone who's going to take -- make bets on failed solar companies. we want someone who is going to create jobs and i think mitt romney has shown he has the ability to create jobs. many of their retailers you currently buy, whether it is a staple for other companies, he created. i think he has a record of creating jobs and a record of reviving institutions that were failing such as the salt lake city olympics. we have a great opportunity here and we need to create jobs to grow this economy. >> the only thing i would take issue with is that he says obama has not been successful. what earl -- what is success? is it making a lot of money or is it helping out this country? the problem with that romney's record as he has gone in, taken over companies, laid-off workers, increased his bottom line, but hurt the communities he is in. this is the choice of voters have in the house races. are going to send people

of different situations. mitt romney has not talked about afghanistan much because the bottom line is that even within his own party americans are pretty sick of a decade of war and support of of the policies obama has pursued to to me to -- end those conflicts. host: from twitter -- governor romney, i'd temper my remarks on the u.s. strong principal global leadership. you will not find universal agreement. you can share your opinions on twitter and we can share it on the air. larry. georgia. democrats line. how are you? caller: sleepy. host: well, wake up. caller: first, mitt romney is the most war-mongering mormon that i ever met. i do not know what he wants to spend so much money on the military. i was in the military. i'm retired. we do not need that much money going into the military. we wasted and used more money than you could imagine. trust me. secondly, i do not think these skirmishes over in the middle east area and in africa have anything to do with the american people as far as us knowing what is going on. too much information and false information is what starts the 9/

. the romney campaign has been lying to the american public and talking about having an impact on bipartisanship in this state, you don't have bipartisanship here in this state, and you did not have it in the u.s. congress. that all the jobs bill that the president offered, bought four obamacare -- even make compromises with republicans and they still did not vote for it. i am listening to lies and listening to the american people say they are sick and tired of it, and quite frankly, so am i. hostguest: democrats and republicans, the directors and board members are saying they wanted the three days and the legislature listened to them. host: hamilton county, a republican stronghold in this state. we are in columbus. go ahead. caller: i think it is interesting that we don't hear anything about the word abortion. we hear the words of women's rights, and women's rights to their own body, but we don't hear the word abortion in this election. i think it is time that we say the word. 45-60% of black pregnancies in up in an abortion. the black community should wake up. guest: roe versus
